Tutorial to create an automatic dormer in HD Suite 2015

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this already exists somewhere, but the only examples I've found thus far don't show how to "drag and drop" a dormer on a roof in HD Suite 2015.  I have a basic two floor design and want to have some dormers on the second floor.

 

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks

Here's an example of a dormer, the dormer has to fit inside the roof pane. 

 

 

Draw a room, use the dormer tool and apply to any one of the roof panes to get an idea of how it works.

Thanks...what I need to do is resize the dormer if the roof plan is slightly too small to fit the auto dormer into.  I've looked at the tutorial for HD Pro on manually creating dormers, but don't know if this works in HD Suite 2015. 

 

The auto dormer tool is fine, but you can't make it smaller...only wider or narrower...but not shorter.  Unless I'm missing something.

 

I'll keep searching for options.

If it's to big for roof pane, then open the specification box, resize the height and/or pitch.

 

Here is some examples:

 

The first one is 30" high then 20"  10"  5"
